This cameo pendant or brooch is a beautiful example of late Victorian jewelry. It is made of hallmarked 10 karat yellow gold.
The piece has an early safety pin closure and a turn down bale so it can also be used as a pendant. The bale may have been added at a later date, but oh so convenient.
The piece has a rectangular shape, measuring 1" by 7/8". The center contains a hardstone cameo of a classical female bust which is white, set against a black background, most likely onyx. The surrounding gold trim has a pretty etched design, typical of the period.
The pendant/brooch weighs 3.6 grams and is in fine antique condition.
